are there any plans on getting Xfce 4.12 on epel7 (e.g. copr repo)? I've
been able to mockchain build pretty much everything sans:
pragha-1.2.2-5.fc20.src.rpm (missing deps, more than one, haven't tried
yet rebuilding them all)
ristretto-0.8.0-1.fc23.src.rpm (missing deps for libappstream-glib
which is unbuildable on epel7: too old glib, but fails late in build
Haven't tried the functionality though yet.
List, good afternoon,
How might I manage to install XFCE onto a laptop equipped only with
WiFi, but unable to establish a connection because the wireless card
requires a recent non-free firmware component for the Broadcom BCM 43142?
I'd like to try, and then probably install, the current XFCE release
onto an HP Stream 11 Notebook PC.
This machine has a potentially useful spec but is limited to:
32GB MMC SDD HD,
2 x USB,
WiFi BCM 43142
There is no wired Ethernet LAN connector. I'd like to run XFCE live
on this, first, and then would prefer to install XFCE onto a USB
stick, so that I can leave the (rather small) MMC SDD HD running
Windows - I need to drop back to Windows for Excel (and Word),
sometimes (mainly in instances where Libre Office isn't sufficiently
I am not sure how or where I should both:
(a) obtain the required driver, and
(b) once obtained, how to persuade either
(i) the Live XFCE spin to install the driver (if available), or
(ii) Ensure that any subsequent install onto USB is able to install
the Broadcom driver
I could download the driver using another machine which does have
connectivity, and copy the driver onto an SD card which could be read
by XFCE on the HP Stream notebook. But I do not know how to install
the driver into Fedora, either when running live, nor when fully
I'd be grateful for any ideas,

I maintain xfce-polkit¹ and it's now pushed to stable, except for F23
cause of the Beta Freeze. Is there a chance to replace polkit-gnome with
it in the Xfce Live spin?
To ease autostart, I would like to provide a desktop file for it in the
package itself. But xfce4-session prevents this desktop file currently
with its own conflicting configuration for polkit-gnome, this seems
somehow like a hack or at least a work-around only, a desktop file from
dedicated polkit package (respectively xfce-polkit then) is IMHO the
I have no idea where to ask this question... The desktop menu behaviour has
changed recently (by my measures, not sure when exactly) and it drives me
crazy. I'm used to launch an application by pressing the right mouse button
on the desktop then navigating to the desired launcher and releasing the
button, no left mouse click. This used to start the application, but now it
brings me the launcher editor.
Is there some configuration option that would bring the old behaviour back?
It's even inconsistent with the rest of the applications where the "right
mouse drag" in context menu produces equivalent of "right click, move, left
I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks and regards,
